Some also think it's a good idea to use a pale grey background for slightly darker grey text, and that probably doesn't help. Honest black on white is quite common though.

"Kuinka monta ihmistä Apottia oikein koodaa?" Minusta tämä on ihan oikeutettu kysymys.

Husin tulevan Apotti-potilastietojärjestelmän toimittajaksi valittiin amerikkalainen Epic Systems Corporation. Epicin tarjous oli 384 miljoonaa euroa. Miksi niin paljon?

An no, I don't think L.A. Woman is the only good (or 70% good) song The Doors ever did, nor is it even the only one that's not about Morrison. Still, this is a great open letter with wonderful advice.

It's interesting, and sometimes I still think about it. This was pretty much the best we ever were. As there was no further progress, artistic or commercial, we simply died away with a whimper. Would have been nice to have a larger audience and I think our people would have deserved a real rock and roll band, but alas, that was not meant to be.
